The Urban Forest Ecosystems Institute (UFEI) addresses the increasing need for improved management of the urban forests in California.


Whether looking for tree selection, tree identification, tree health, urban wood use, urban forest management information or just looking at pictures, our resources are here to help.

"People in suburbia see trees differently than foresters do. They cherish every one. It is useless to speak of the probability that a certain tree will die when the tree is in someone's backyard...You are talking about a personal asset, a friend, a monument, not about board feet of lumber."
